Colin Thubron on Travel Writing

No sooner do I deliver my twopennyworth on travel writing than Colin Thubron comes along and says it all so much better than I can do in The Guardian.  Before visiting Cyprus last December I read his 1970s book, Journey to Cyprus, and found it, like all his books, beautifully written, wise and observant.  Less flashy and self-advertising than some of the well-known travel writers, Thubron is an unfailingly interesting writer about place.
